Provisioning a SharePoint Online Delegate Account

You can provision a Delegate Account for both SharePoint Online and OneDrive either automatically or manually.

Automatically provisioning Delegate Accounts does the following:

  • Creates new service accounts based on selected Office 365 services

  • Configures required roles and other settings for the new service accounts

Automatically provisioning Delegate Accounts eliminates the need to:

  • Manually create and configure Office 365 user accounts

  • Manually add SharePoint Online site collections

  • Manually assign SharePoint Online and OneDrive site collections administrators, one by one
